Winning message in Outbox


Outbox can see off all challengers in Goodwood's Qatar Summer Handicap.

The final day of the Glorious meeting will for many, of course, be all about finding the winner of the age-old puzzle that is the Unibet Stewards' Cup.

But that historic six-furlong showpiece is just one of a series of handicap conundrums thrown up by a hugely competitive card, and Outbox could put punters ahead on points after round two.

Simon Crisford's four-year-old faces a rematch with likely favourite King's Advice, Outbox finishing a six-length sixth behind him at Newcastle.

King's Advice has gone up 7lb for his trouble, though, and must concede six of them to Outbox. That gives Crisford's gelding obvious prospects.

Further to his case is the impression he made in three victories during a brief, unbeaten campaign last autumn and narrow Listed defeat on his return at Chantilly in June.

Little over half-an-hour later, Enbihaar also lines up for a rematch with an old rival.

John Gosden's four-year-old will be facing Dramatic Queen for the third successive time this season, in the Group Two Qatar Lillie Langtry Stakes, having apparently been outstayed over this same trip by William Haggas' filly at York before turning the tables over two furlongs shorter in the Lancashire Oaks at Haydock.

Enbihaar can prevail again at a course that should suit her running style.

Khaadem holds the class edge in the Stewards' Cup, as a Listed winner and Group Three runner-up this season.
